Excerpt

aison des champs, d'hôtel en couvent, prisonnière et gardien volontaires tous deux, se déguisant tantôt en cavaliers tantôt en religieux pour échapper à des poursuites auxquelles personne n'avait jamais songé.

Plus tard nous retrouvons, à l'automne de 1655, Madame de Chatillon mêlée aux négociations qui amenèrent le maréchal d'Hocquincourt, gouverneur de Péronne, Ham et Montdidier, à rentrer dans l'obéissance royale. Il y a là, dans les rôles joués par la duchesse de Chatillon, par Navailles et par Basile Foucquet les éléments d'une comédie spirituellement conduite et dont on voit Mazarin tenir les fils de Compiègne.


III
